The Valley’s best performers of all ages are presented in this exciting talent competition that has become a McCallum audience favorite and sell-out event. Local artists team up with the staff and crew to present four visually stunning and energy filled performances. Audience members vote for their favorite performer at the first three performances and celebrate the winners at the final performance on Saturday evening. 


Each year, 40,000 children, educators and other community members participate in free and donor subsidized education programs produced by McCallum Theatre Education.  Your financial contribution – no matter how large or small – is an investment in their future.  With your help, the McCallum brings youngsters to the Theatre and conducts over 2,300 workshops in theater, dance, music and visual arts in Valley classrooms each year at no cost to the students.
